Storyline

While on shore leave on the planet Argelius II with Dr. McCoy and Captain Kirk, Chief Engineer Scott finds himself accused of murdering an exotic dancer he met in a nightclub. He has no recollection of the incident but is found standing over the girl with a bloody knife in his hand. For Mr. Hengist, the chief administrator, the case is cut and dried, but Jaris, the planet's leader, suggests that his wife chair a séance to identify the killer. Tragedy strikes again, still pointing to Mr. Scott as the culprit. Kirk suggests they retire to the Enterprise where they can use its computers to determine if Scott is lying and who the real culprit may be. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

This is the first episode of the second season to completely utilize stock music, largely from Gerald Fried's scores for Star Trek: Catspaw (1967) and Star Trek: Friday's Child (1967). Fried's Finnegan jig from Star Trek: Shore Leave (1966) can also be heard. See more »

Goofs

Scotty's hand shifts position between shots as he is on the witness stand. More, the close-up of Scotty's hand was that of another actor. This was done to conceal the fact that James Doohan's right middle finger was missing, the result of his participation in the 1944 Invasion of Normandy. See more »

Quotes

Voice of Redjac: I am without ending. I have existed from the dawn of time, and I shall I live beyond its end! In the meantime, I shall feed, and this time I do not need a knife. You will all die horribly in searing pain!
Mr. Spock: It is attempting to generate terror, Captain.
Voice of Redjac: I can cut off your oxygen and suffocate you!
Sulu: Captain.
[McCoy injects Sulu with a hydrospray, Sulu immediately becomes euphoric]
Sulu: Whoever he is, he sure talks gloomy.
[starts to rise from chair]
Captain James T. Kirk: [pushing Sulu back into his chair] Man your post, Sulu.

Another Trial
29 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On an R & R trip to a peaceful planet where violence is unheard of, Scottie takes a walk with a beautiful courtesan, only to be discovered, knife in hand, over her body. He is arrested and set for trial. A whiny prosecutor named Hengist assumes Scottie's guilt. A young woman is beamed down to assist with the investigation. She takes Scot into a briefing area. While she questions she is killed and Scot lies, unconscious near the body. The prefect of the city and his wife offer to hold a kind of séance where his wife, who has some sort of clairvoyant gift is to get to the truth. Unfortunately, during the séance, the lights go out and the woman is standing, knife in the back, Scottie standing behind her, blood on his hands. Kirk knows that the ship's computer can determine guilt or innocence. The prefect goes along with it, bringing two witnesses and Hengist with him. One weird thing is that the prefect doesn't seem terribly upset about the death of his wife. Still he wants to get to the truth. It isn't long before some interesting data begins to appear. Mr. Hengist is quite combative through the whole thing. This is the third trial of one of the principle characters. This episode is entertaining and fun. The failing is that people don't seem to react very strongly to the deaths of their colleagues.
